with the speaker. >> well, a washington lifer and thus was not the obvious choice to be leading this tea party class. nonetheless, he could see the tea party phenomenon for the freight train that it was an elected to be on the train rather than to be underneath it. and so, you know, the speaker campaigned heavily for a number of the two-party freshman, and he also, you know, believe that is presented the republicans and indeed america with a great opportunity. his belief, for example, was that this would be a perfect recipe for entitlement reform. he wanted, if you're going after in selma reform, you want ideally to have, you know, bipartisanship and pieces of the democratic presidents of the they could not walk away from it. and so he believe that he could leverage, you know, the deep conservatism of the two-party into action, but he has failed to do so. and the tea party freshmen with whom i spent a great deal of time, and i have spent time with an awful lot of them, you know, like him personally, found an admirable in the way of a genial ceo, but certainly not as their real leader. and that
worries me. since when have we ever seen any spending cuts coming from washington d.c.? charles, spending is going to go up 10 trillion dollars over the next decade and they're telling us they're going to cut a few trillion off of that, so, spending is going to go higher and taxes, my big worry is once they break the top and raise taxes, we're talking marginal rates here, it's not going to stop. that's the worry and i've got to tell you, for me, the biggest irritant of all of this, they waited until the last minute on the debt ceiling and then sold it as the end of the world is coming if we don't get this done now. >> right. >> and waited until the last minute and scaring the living cran out of everybody. >> dagen, let's talk about that because a great article in the journal, businesses are cutting back no doubt about it, but consumers are cutting back and it's an indictment on everyone in washington. >> one of the reasons if we go over the fiscal cliff and it will hit 90% americans. and lowest income, 30,000 a year a family a tax bill north of $1,000 a year and it hits everybody, to that

of the dangers of going over the so-called fiscal cliff. the one washington created. it seems with the noise of the campaign behind us, washington is listening which means that after several months of harping on the dangers that you face, i'm ready to make a big switch to telling you about the opportunities that lie ahead. i'm ali velshi and this is "your money." i will not drop this issue until it is settled. then we have the debt ceiling debate. but there is life after washington induced catastrophe. frankly, it looks like a pretty good life. if all goes according to plan, 2013 could be a big turn around year for the u.s. the start of a recovery that feels real. most of it will have very little to do with washington policy though your state and federal government will have to step in to make it happen. let me explain. first, there's an energy boom under way in the united states right now. fueled by hydraulic fracturing and by more drilling for oil. natural gas is currently cheap, abundant and increasingly used not just as a fuel source direct to home and businesses, but as a source for ele
of those who prevailed in their second term includes george washington, james madison, and rejection, theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan and bill clinton. lincoln is a special case and that his successful second term was so brief. it is interesting to note-only presidents who had a more successful second term than their first word james madison and andrew jackson. the following is an accounting of the president's elected to a second term and the reason for those of experience failed or troubled second terms. four failed because of a war that seemed unwinnable war for lack of preparedness. jefferson, truman, johnson and. were the four. also four failed because of economic crisis or failure to act to deter such a crisis. jefferson, cleveland, coolidge, franklin roosevelt, the 37 downturn and george bush. eight who failed due to their inability to lead congress were jefferson, monroe, grant, wilson, truman, johnson, nixon and george bush. two failed due to who boris. franklin roosevelt and richard nixon. four who did not effectively communicate their agendas or initiat

[laughter] i picked up the phone and i called the command post and i said i would be back by 7:00. i mean, this is a being bad. well, the problem was we had tickets to go to a hall and oates concert that night and guess who get the tickets, the secret service agent. i picked up the phone and of course you had to use a pay phone in those days. i called the command post and said this is susan and i will be back by 7:00 -- [laughter] kim is with me, so i am not alone. i walked back into the command post that afternoon and, i was kind of joking because i realized -- how do i get myself out of this situation now? i said, what time do we need to leave for the concert -- i decided, let's skip over this part and get to it. they said, your father would like to see you.

, this is the washington game. when you have a scandal brewing in washington, get out of town. lou: what do you think of the president deciding to use the language of the former military government of burma in referring to burma as miramar. what do you make of that, if anything? >> well, i really don't know what to make of it. but i will say that certainly while he is out there, i would hope he would take the opportunity to condemn china for its bullying and aggressive tactics and the iron imperialism in the south and east china sea. and while he's there, he should make it very clear that should their tactics involved in hostilities between our allies, japan, and the philippines, they are a mutual defense treaty that will be brought into play. anything less than a will not deter china from progressive tactics. a shop needs to be fired across the land. lou: referring to israel and the engagement of hamas, which looks like, right now, despite the involvement of the united nations secretary general and others, trying to mediate, it looks like this could turn into a ground operation which the israelis ha

henneberg is live in washington and molly, we heard that the state department put out a statement on this, but omits one thing which is what? >> his name, president morsi's name. instead the state department says the decisions and declarations in egypt quote, raised concerns for egyptians and the community. and assuring that power would not be overly concentrated in the hand of any one person or institution. but it does not call on president morsi directly to reverse course. republican senator john mccain who will be on fox news sunday tomorrow was a bit more direct, saying in a tweet, president morsi should renounce his power grab before things get out of hand, hashtag egypt. and the president called morsi one day, to thank him for a cease-fire between hamas and gaza. >> and morsi's actions now putting the obama administration in a tough position, molly. tell us more about that. >> now that morsi fired top prosecutor and put himself above the judiciary system the white house will back off more public support of him and a former ambassador to the u.n. under president george w. bush says t
and some in washington, d.c.. how unions trying to persuade democrats to avoid spending cuts? >> with a significant lobbying effort on capitol hill and a new advertising campaign targeted at democratic and republican lawmakers in pennsylvania, virginia and missouri. the basic message is don't touch entitlements in the fiscal cliff tops we're having on capitol hill. honesty and one of the union says elected officials from both parties need to listen to the will of the voters and focus on rebuilding the middle class and strengthening our economy by investing in jobs, not cu. as for the effectiveness of this campai one conservative says this type pressure from unio is nothing new. >> the fact that they are publicly sayinghat they have been privately saying helps the american people understand where obama's in trend and comes from but nothing has changed. >> the issue is in the fiscal cliff discussion democrats appear willing to put entitlements and spending on the table. republicans saying they're willing to do tax revenue and that could be or would be the key to any agreement
on egyptian constitutional law and politics. he's a professor at george washington university. do you find it significant that this wasn't just tahrir square but alexandria, port said. >> oh, yes. essentially most of the non-islammist political forces in egypt-- that is the brotherhood and others aside-- have lined up against us. the real question is are they going to be able to form a united front? and do they have any strategy by which to overturn morsi's decisions. >> suarez: what exactly has he done through these decrees? what did he say-- what powers did he give to himself, basically, until there's a constitution? >> well, he did a lot of little things. he dismissed the old prosecutor, seen as a hold-over from the old rejewel. he promised new trials. but the main thing that he did was to take all of his actions, and place them outside of court review. and he also made impossible to disband the constitutional assembly that is now writing the document. he had already assumed not simply presidential powers but legislative powers. that he did in august. what he is doing right now what, he
in richmond, virginia, educated at washington university and later learned a ph.d. from yale. he spent his first ten years as a newspaper man mostly doing general assignment reporting, and i bet if i called on many of you, you could easily name his novels; "the right stuff," "in our time," "the bonfire of the vanities" and many more, and now "back to blood" which reflects miami back to all of us. how are we going to react to that? he is credited with the birth of new journalism and the death of the american novel by some. he is the mark twain of our time. how lucky are we to have a moment in time with him? and what better way to start this conversation -- hopefully i can get them to come to the stage -- than with a published author in his own right and a man whose name is synonymous with leadership, our own former mayor, manny diaz. manny diaz, let me turn it to you. hopefully, we can get him up here, and tom wolfe. please welcome them.

against human desire. back cannot work. i am a student at george washington university. there is a large push from the and the price of a community about legalization of marijuana. -- from the undergraduate timidity about legislation and marijuana. could this lead to a nationwide reform movement? >> it is different. i presume the undergraduate movement at gwi is people who want to get something. temperance movement was to deny somebody else opportunity to get something. the women's movement that was the firast mass move apart -- movement for prohibition was very noble. women were victimized by prohibition in horrible ways. women have no voting rights, the bourse was a rarity. -- women had no voting rights, divorce was a rarity. it was an effort to free the family, free women from this. it is hard to get my arms around comparison between that and an undergraduate desire for marijuana. >> most major changes in the country, from popular movements, some of them start on college campuses, some in other places. >> there is a meaningful parallel. it is generational. the same generation that is

when it relates to that photo that was shown in "the washington post" where they had the picture of the palestinian with the dead baby and then they showed the competing israelis in the bomb shelter. i didn't get as offended by that as other people did in terms of saying that "the washington post" was more towards the palestinians. i didn't, i didn't see-- >> more flagrant though is cnn running phony footage and the bbc a sweep from syria they said was palestinian and british reporter, bbc john donovan said i accidentally smeared the israelis and i really meant to smear the syrian government. stone silent, the bbc won't fire him. who knows from a week ago other than tweeting again. >> jon: judy, the coverage of what happened then, tends to focus how many rockets were fired and how many casualties on both sides, but there seems to be a vast moral goal between the two sides. here is a look at the cover of the new york daily news and then, basically the same title and the the same totphoto, in te new york post. and very similar coverage of hamas members dragging somebody through the

. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it's not as if now ambassador rice has decided well, you know, i had to come out and defend my comments. this is a planned move by the white house, i believe, because, you know, they want to put her out there as the secretary of state. i think they are feeling fairly emboldened after the election and just intend to jam this joyce through despite the congress and republicans in congress saying now we are going to block. this i think what they are doing is setting the table for ambassador rice's nomination. >> in fact, they may have blown it up. why didn't they put someone out there, in your opinion, like clapper who actually had all the intel, probably talked with a lot of the intelligence officers in addition to the state department instead of someone like rice that clearly was more relaying information she was told second hand? i think essentially she was willing to get out there for the white house, be the front pointy edge of the spear. be the sewage and now she is being rewarded for carrying their water. it's a good question. obvio
